Well, it’s camp time once again! We are so excited for the upcoming summer. I’m sure that you, as parents, are excited as well for your child to be coming to camp. For some of you, especially our first time families, you are probably feeling a little anxious, not knowing quite what to expect for your child, or how they will survive at camp without you.
Rest assured, they will make it through, and most of them will thrive in our camp community! Camp is one of the few places where children can begin to learn a sense of independence, and learn that they can make it on their own for a brief time. They also learn a sense of inter-dependence, building friendships with other campers from all over the country, all under the supervision of caring and loving young adults. It will be difficult for some of you to leave your child with us, possibly being the first time you have ever separated for more than a night or two. Realize that you are doing them a favor by providing them with the opportunity to rely on themselves, adults other than you, and God.
We are excited about what God has in store for each of our campers and staffers this summer. Thank you for entrusting us with your children. We look forward to their being with us soon! God bless!
